A statement from Mark Summer at today's Abbreviated Pundit Round-up made me laugh:
For a long time, "they're against it just because we're for it" seemed like a bit of an overstatement. But when they're against reaching out to help kidnapped children just because liberals went there first... yeah, saddening is one term that might apply.
Not in one of those, "that's funny because it's a funny joke" kind of thing, but in a "I see this thing all over the internet" kind of way. The comment is in response to the conservative reaction to trying to bring attention to the kidnapped Nigerian girls, which really did amount to nothing more than "Michelle Obama brought it up, therefore it must be wrong."
At Balloon Juice, Cleek's Law is defined as the following:
today’s conservatism is the opposite of what liberals want today: updated daily.
Since the creation of the reactionary Republicans, it generally always seems to apply, which is why sometimes we ask the president to extol the virtues of breathing.
